He had been ill for a couple of years with thyroid problems and was on daily medication. He was doing great for an 18 year old.
We will all miss him. Tessie let me think that he was my cat, but he was really hers.
Actually, he started out as April's cat. She moved to Pennsylvania and went to grad school there. He became my cat. We didn't think that he would adapt well to the cold climate back there.
She found another cat while she was back there and brought it back to AZ with her. That was when Mookie officially became my cat.
He patiently put up with Tessie for the past few years. I think that he enjoyed being a part of her world and she enjoyed being part of his.
He never ever tried to chew her head off. Even when she annoyed him greatly....She often did.
This is one of my favorite photos of him. He loved Christmas and all of the decorations that he could mess with. We used to find ornaments all over the house from him batting them around.
I am just happy that he made it as long as he did. He was a good friend and will be missed by the whole family.
Taking the day off.
See you tomorrow.
